Updated: Mar 3, 2019

Let's talk Hermès...


'The Birkin Bag: a better investment than stocks and shares' - The Guardian


Here at The Fussy Shopper, we find the impossible and exclusive, and that includes Hermès bags! You may or may not know how notoriously difficult a Birkin or a Kelly in particular are to obtain but our clients definitely do! And this is why they are the ultimate investment - who knew you could make money from a handbag, it's a woman's dream!


As a true Hermès lover, you will know there are several rules to purchasing a Hermès bag, especially the Birkin and Kelly. Living within a certain radius of the store, having spent £100k+ within your local store, and of course the years long waiting list. This is why Hermes bags are so popular, because we all want what we can't get right?


So what is it that we love about these bags? Well... with the endless amounts of colours, leathers, skins, and hardware options, we really can source you the perfect bag to suit your personality. People tend to want the more popular colours as they will match the majority of their outfits which is a super savvy plan! Others love the rare exotic skin Birkins or Kellys, so it's a personal preference - but the good news is that we can source them all!


At The Fussy Shopper, we always source and deliver the Hermes bags as though they were bought directly from the store and that's how it will be delivered to you. Oh and it gets better, we offer a complimentary personal hand delivery service directly to your door! *This applies if you live in the UK, but we can also offer this service worldwide at an extra cost.


We deliver to clients all across the globe, from Paris, Switzerland, Luxembourg to New York, Dubai, Hong Kong!

Hermès History

We don’t want to bore you with the ins and outs but a bit of background knowledge on Hermes is here if you're interested!


Hermès the brand was created by Thierry Hermes in 1837. Hermès was initially a harness workshop that that gained recognition and won awards for its bridles for carriage trades. The store was then moved by Thierry Hermès son, Charles-Emile Hermès, where the development of saddle bags and eventually jackets are created through the generations.


The first women's handbag was created in 1922 and in 1929 the first couture apparel collection was released. After this, the bag magic continued and as they say, the rest was history…

The Kelly Bag


Did you know that this is actually an unnamed bag by Hermès! It was created in the 1930’s by Robert Dumas and didn’t find its fame in the bag world until the 1950’s. It was made extremely popular and given its “now” name (Kelly) as Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco, shielded her then pregnant stomach with the bag.

The Kelly bag is a structured bag with one arm and a detachable shoulder strap now available. Now worn by the likes of Victoria Beckham, Tamara Ecclestone and of course the Kardashians, the bag is exceptionally popular and has kept its celebrity name and status.


The Birkin Bag


When Jane Birkin and Jean-Louis Dumas had a chance meeting on a plane, it changed the Hermès bag and brand forever. As Jane Birkin described and help design her ideal bag, the new Hermès founder created the new “It” bag for her. The Birkin bag has two handles and the signature double arm fastening on the front. Now so popular and elusive, the bag holds its own celebrity status in the handbag world.


The Constance Bag


Another favourite of The Fussy Shoppers but not always as thrown into the spotlight as the Kelly and the Birkin is the Constance. Created by Catherine Chaillet in 1959 and name after her newly born child the bag stands the test of time with its square shape, signature H buckle on the front and cross body strap.


There are currently rumours that the Hermès Constance bag range is to be discontinued, but we will always be able to source you one - it could be a great investment piece! A true favourite of the Fashionista!


We can't wait to welcome you to the Hermès bag club!!
